Real buzz as firm marks two decades

Evesham Editorial 9th Mar, 2019   0

AN EVESHAM family firm has celebrated two decades of putting the spark into homes and businesses across the Vale with a visit from town MP Nigel Huddleston.

Like many start-up businesses, Buzz Electrical Ltd had humble beginnings in a garden office attached to the family home.

The birthday celebrations were held at their offices in the heart of Evesham and after being welcomed by managing director Steve Owens, director Sue Owens and marketing manager Lucy Biltcliffe, Mr Huddleston was introduced and met the office team before having a look around the offices and hearing about some of the important company milestones and achievements.

To mark and celebrate 20 successful years in the Vale of Evesham, the Mid Worcestershire MP was invited to cut the 20th anniversary cake and launch their chosen charity for the year, Diabetes UK.

Steve and Sue Owens began the company working from their home in Badsey.

Buzz Electrical was established in 1999, after Steve had worked for 20 years as a self-employed electrician following completion of his electrical apprenticeship. Employing just one person in the early days, it wasn’t long before the business rapidly grew and they moved to an industrial unit in Evesham.

The businesses expanded in 2015 and as well as the relocation, Steve and Sue’s team grew to 27 members as well as a specialist technical division Buzz Technical.

More recently, Buzz won Small Apprenticeship Employer of the Year and Apprenticeship Employer of the Year for 2018 at the 2018 Worcestershire Apprenticeships Awards as well as becoming finalists in the prestigious national Electrical Industry Awards 2018 as Electrical Contractor of the Year for the second year running where they were also awarded ‘Highly Commended’.

“Twenty years is an important milestone and I am personally proud of the success we have achieved,” Steve said.

“It is testament to our fantastic team who all work so hard and are dedicated that has enabled us to invest in growing the business, creating new jobs and focussing on continuous improvement over the years which has enabled us to be successful.”

“We wanted to celebrate but also to raise awareness and funds for Diabetes UK, a charity close to our heart. We are planning some events throughout the year to support Diabetes UK including an anniversary charity ball at The Wood Norton in November,” he added.
